A breast of things


Today I went to the Breast clinic at my local hospital.
I have been having considerable discomfort in my left breast and under arm for several months now. So my doctor sent me for a check up with a very nice man, with warm hands. He had a feel, then sent me for a few mammograms. Results being I have nothing to worry about, but upon looking at the results, he feels there may be some thing else, not being breast tissue that is causing the pain. He suggested I go on Tomazipan which apparently regulates the hormones, but there is a risk of causing DVT.. of which can be a killer if not caught early enough. So we are going for Acupuncture in 3 months time. In the mean time I have to take pain killers and anti-inflammatory medication. So all in all a good result, however I still have pain in my left breast and under arm area, not life threatening...phew! I can't stand needles but wil be brave.. smiles all round!

arrgh crap... Lady, what a stress!

I'm glad it seems to not be the big C, but i guess it doesn't stop the owies.

and even though they are literally being a pain at the moment, i can't help noting with lovely breasts they are :)

take care, keep up the monitoring, and I hope things resolve themselves soon.

I'm glad you have nothing to worry about in that respect. Is your doctor prescribing the acupuncture? If so, I'm really impressed that he'll use alternative medicine. YAY! for him.

I wouldn't go on the HRT because the risks were worse then the damn hot flashes! LOL

Lady Pants ~ yeah thee um 'ouch' part is very OUCH right now. Just spent nearly an hour in the doctors waiting room... had a job stayin awae for that time too. I'm now on Co-codamol which is Paracetsmol+codine.. may cause drowsiness if so don't drive ya bike or car... at which point they will end up in the garbage bin. Thank you... yeah I guess I do have nice ...um 'breasts' *smiling*
